    Agency grow-getters – How to plan for scalable, profitable growth: a workshop with Jay Neale Group Created with Sketch.



    Origin Workspace, 40 Berkeley Square, Bristol, BS8 1HP

    BCI Workshop

    Most agencies are set up out of passion. The goal is simple: Do great work. Work with great people. Do it their way. Earn enough money.

    One minute it’s all fun and games, a lifestyle pretty rock ‘n’ roll. Now calendars are chock-a-block and the worry is about mortgages and payroll. They say as you multiply by three, things change and it gets tougher.

    In this Agency Work-shop, you’ll learn the phases of agency growth, the five pillars that make a scalable agency, how to make a growth plan and kick it into action and what numbers you should be tracking to get set, grow.
